What Does A Medical Assistant Do?

Medical Assistants often act as the bridge between patients and doctors and/or nurses. They are often responsible for many patient interactions, including the following:

  • Welcoming patients and scheduling appointments and follow-up visits.
  • Recording patients’ vital signs and basic medical history.
  • Assisting doctors or nurses with the medical examination.
  • Prepare and administer injections as instructed by a physician.
  • Prepare blood samples for lab analysis.
  • Become familiar with maintaining, accessing, and analyzing electronic health records (EHRs).

How Much Can Medical Assistants Make?

The most recent salary information comes from the 2015 Bureau of Labor Statistics. The median annual wage for medical assistants was $30,590 in May 2015. The median wage is the wage at which half the workers in an occupation earned more than that amount and half earned less. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $22,040, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $43,880*.
